  7. Draws on the knowledge & experience of approx. 250 yrs in the past.
  8. Most of the Research is focused on Pharmaceutical Drugs, Chemo Therapy, Radiation Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy, DNA Therapy, Laser, Bio-Robotic and Bio-technology.
  9. Relies heavily on Clinical Trials & Research on a large scale to prove efficacy of drugs or surgery etc.
  10. Synthetic Chemical & Mechanical orientated.
  11. BOTH employ Advanced Medical & Scientific Research & Testing.
